Default Snow board calculator

Happened up this site and thought I should share it here. Also kinda wonder how close it comes to someone who has already found their board. It seemed pretty accurate for me. Does seem like a good starting point for someone to investigate snowboards

I guess you could say it gives a fairly vague ballpark of what one should be looking at for board length. But in the past, I have found it to give me quite odd numbers when I plug my stats in.

Determining board size is not rocket science. If you know the basics, it isn't hard to figure out the board you should use. It isn't always exact either. I think that you're better off just figuring out the WHY of snowboard sizing, rather than relying on a computer to do it for you. The confidence you feel when buying a board and knowing what size you need is gratifying.

Oh, just so you know, I'm against using calculators or having someone else tell you your board size.

That calculator is pretty good if you put an average height in (i.e. 5'9" or 5'10"), and choose Freestyle-Expert for a good starting point for an all-mountain resort board.

i find k5.com to have the most accurate one..

EDIT: after going through that one i found it to be really accurate actually it got my park board and my free ride boards down to what i actually ride in real life

It's an estimate at best. Your riding style, riding type, boot size, weight, height, leg strength, snow condtions, boot stiffness, price range, graphics, and just generally not wanting an imported piece of crap will determine your board and size. Even if it takes all those factors into consideration, relying on that is helpful at best, deceptive at worst. The right board for you is the one that feels right to you.

Yea this particular one seems to actually be pretty dead on.

At 135 for Freeride/Freestyle it gave exactly the board i ride pretty much. 151cm w/ 24.6 waist...my SL-R is a 24.3 waist but thats very minor...

Yeah I know it is all very much personal preference but just thought it made a good starting point for some one who does not know what they want. Was just meant for a starting point in my eyes. The more you know with out biased opinions the better off you are with most things.
